Has This Summer Been Too Much for Your AC?

September 5th, 2022

Each summer, your AC goes on a long endurance run as it battles to remove heat from your home. Did it just run its last course and maybe needs to quit?

Because, let’s face it, this was a rough summer to be a cooling system in Florida. Too much heat, too much humidity. A newer AC installation in Clearwater, FL is probably in decent shape and ready for more heat next year (provided it has its annual maintenance appointment in spring). An aging AC may be looking at a wobbly future unless repaired—or even replaced. How can you tell if this summer was too much for your cooling system?

You may be considering getting an air purifier in Dunedin, FL to improve your home’s indoor air quality (IAQ). We think this is a great idea, especially with more people staying indoors because of the intense heat and humidity. We can provide you with information on what types of pollutants an air purifier will remove from your home to help you understand better how these installations can improve IAQ and the general health of the people in your household.

Before we go into what contaminants air purifiers remove, we want to point out what they don’t remove well, which is large particles: dust, pet dander, lint, and pollen. The best way to remove these is with a standard air filter. And that’s a good place to start when looking at the contaminants an air purifier does remove…

Changing your air conditioner’s filters is an essential step in maintaining the entire system. Those filters work to pull out material from the air coming into the system, keeping it from creating clogs and dust throughout your home. Many people don’t replace their AC filters often enough. However, doing so every 1 to 3 months offers a number of key benefits, including keeping your system from overheating and shutting down. If you’re keeping up with air conditioning maintenance, you are not likely to have a problem. If your system is inefficient now, getting air conditioning repair in Dunedin, FL, may be essential.

July 11th, 2022

We’ve talked before about the warning sounds from an air conditioner that will tell you when it’s time to call our technicians for AC repair in Tampa, FL. Strange and unusual noises coming from any part of a split system air conditioner are a reason for concern, and the faster you move to have the AC inspected and repaired, the less risk of the air conditioning system suddenly breaking down or developing a more expensive repair issue.

But “strange” and “unusual” are relative—what do they actually mean? We can describe these noises to you, but we can also describe the sounds you should expect to hear from an air conditioning system when it’s running as it should. So to put a positive spin on AC repairs, here are the customary noises you’ll hear from your air conditioner this summer when it’s doing the job you need from it.

Do You Need Air Filters or Air Purifiers for Your House?

June 27th, 2022

If you’re asking yourself whether you should have air filters or air purifiers added to your house, it’s because you’re concerned about the quality of your indoor air. You have good reason to feel worried: poor indoor air quality is a major problem in many buildings, with the Environmental Protection Agency estimating that the air quality indoors is often three to five times worse than the air outdoors. This is because buildings like your home are constructed for maximum insulation—and this means there’s little fresh air circulating to cleanse out stale and contaminate-filled air.

Air filtration and purification systems are an excellent way to boost your home’s air quality by removing the majority of unwanted particles from moving through the HVAC system. But how do you know which one to get and what type you need? The job is easier than you think: you just need to get in touch with our team. We offer full service to install indoor air quality systems.
